Hove, East Sussex: Slab-O-Concrete, nd. (2001). First edition. Sq. 4to. Wrps., 110pp. Includes 120+ illustrations in colour and b/w.

The book takes its title from Art Spiegelman's comment on the comic book's subcultural status, and documents twenty-five years of fringe publishing, from the psychedelic underground to internet publishing.

Publications covered include Sniffin' Glue, Buffy zines and Ghost World, as well as the 'Konvention of Alternative Komix'. Includes essays by Fantagraphics founder Gary Groth; David Kendall; Miriam Rivett (on electronic publishing); Steven Heller (on the mainstream assimilation of underground techniques); and the editors, along with interviews with Peter Bagge (Neat Stuff and Hate), Joe Sacco (Safe Area Goražde), and Kira Jolliffea (Cheap Date magazine), among others, plus a selected bibliography.
